St. Bernard Parish Officials recently broke ground on the Yscloskey Ice House located on Yscloskey Highway.

Groundbreaking ceremony held for reconstruction of the Yscloskey Ice House

St. Bernard Parish Officials broke ground on the Yscloskey Ice House located on Yscloskey Highway. The reconstruction project is part of ongoing recovery efforts in St. Bernard Parish. Under this project, the existing ice house will be demolished and replaced with a concrete masonry unit structure elevated above the flood plain. The ice house will produce emergency ice for hurricane recovery operations, and will include an emergency generator to allow operation during loss of power. Once completed, the ice house will have a production capacity of approximately 16 tons of cracked ice per day.
